Understand your Macquarie degree requirements by checking the Handbook

Alternatively you may apply for " unspecified credit " which will reduce the elective component of your chosen Macquarie degree.

You will be required to upload evidence of prior learning as part of your application - so you need to have all your supporting evidence ready before you start the online application process.
